The "Gigelberg". The striking elevation to the west of the city centre is considered a landmark of Biberach. It is known throughout the district, mainly due to the Schützenfest. But the Gigelberg is much more than just a festival site. Many a Biberach resident has played on this beloved mountain as a child, got into mischief and spent many happy hours there. And the Gigelberg also has a lot to offer from a historical perspective. This exhibition is intended to give insight into its exciting history and rediscover forgotten details.
